Abstract. Three types of commercial powders have been deposited on the inlet and outlet valve plates in order to increase their lifetime, but especially the temperature in the combustion chamber. The layers were coated by atmospheric plasma spray method. The coatings morphology was analysed using two complementary methods: scanning electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction. The mechanical characteristics analysed were: microhardness, modulus of elasticity and adhesion / cohesion of coatings using scratch tests. Following those tests it was observed that the coatings are physically suited for further tests as thermal barrier coatings (TBC) on the valve discs of internal combustion engines.
